Topics that do not constitute an interest for the current issue:

Avoid political issues in which you try to show that a certain Islamic country is ruling the better Islam (especially when it goes to the Saudi Arabia-Iran conflict)
No topics allowed that defame Islam or insults the religion or its believers. We want to build bridges and tear borders apart and Islamophobia is definitely no great help on that.
Avoid topics that might degrade minorities in any form. Keep in mind, all Muslims are brothers and sisters!
